Neutral with a Dash of Neon!

June 16, 2011

This is my first Bloggers Do It Better post! The challenge for this week was Neon + Neutral, which is a complete coincidence as I wrote about neutral clothes with neon nails earlier this week. I wish I could’ve gotten better photos, but since I’ve been away from Miami for so long, I suddenly can’t tolerate mosquitoes like I used to. Also, the colors in Florida are SO vibrant compared to Rhode Island…they make my auto white balance act up so much! I guess this is karma for being lazy.

Top, skirt: American Apparel
Belt: Vintage
Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita Get them here!
Nail Polish: ‘Neon Green’ by American Apparel and ‘Blue Me Away’ by Sally Hansen

While my neon was extremely minimal, I liked it offsetting such a neutral outfit. I haven’t done much of all brown tones, so I decided to switch it up in that department. I usually do mostly black with some white, so this was a personally refreshing twist.

Ignore whatever it is my hair is doing. I’m actually in the process of going natural so I’m no longer relaxing my hair! I’ll have my thick curly hair that I miss so much! I’m almost afraid of what my hair will look like straight after the process. It won’t ever be as straight, but I guess it’s a sacrifice!

This is just a quick outfit post! I’ll be putting them up more frequently when I’m back in RI next week! I can’t wait! 70 degree weather, here I come! <3

Love this look1 And how you added the splash of neon on the nails was genius. I’m also crazy about the shoes!

P.S. Your hair looks lovely, what are you talking about? ;)

Thanks! The nails are my favorite :) I should’ve gotten a photo of them…the thumb nails had nude polka dots! Haha.

I love the neon nails. You are like the 5th person that has mentioned American Apparel for nail polish. I need to check them out!! Very dainty!

Thanks! It’s really great quality nail polish. I was skeptical at first as I usually am with new nail polish brands, but I should’ve known better from AA :)
